screen-profiles-helper: support changing the escape sequence

Bug #317675 reported by Dustin Kirkland 
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
screen-profiles (Ubuntu)
Nick Barcet

Bug Description

Binary package hint: screen-profiles

Some users like ctrl-a as the escape sequence, and others don't.

We should add a action to the screen-profiles-helper menu that would allow a user to change the escape character.

This should happen by adding/editing an appropriate line in the user's local ~/.screenrc file.

This bug was fixed in the package screen-profiles - 1.12-0ubuntu1

screen-profiles (1.12-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  [ Dustin Kirkland ]
  * profiles/common, select-screen-profile: add support for sourcing
    individual user's ~/.screenrc-keybindings file
  * screen-launcher: sanitize user environment by touching sourced files,
    in case they don't exist
  * Updated several scripts license header to point to the GPLv3, which
    is the license this package uses (not GPLv2)

  [ Dustin Kirkland and Nicolas Barcet]
  * screen-profiles-helper: add HOME, SHARE, DOC global variables and use
    them where possible; add functionality to change the escape key
    sequence; dynamically populate current escape sequence in the help.txt
